I'm worried about Alan Young. The man is 95 and *still* voicing Scrooge. I'm scared he might not have the energy for a whole TV show, and 2017 just seems like so very far away...
True, but sometimes work can keep a person healthy and going, ala Betty White and June Foray. Keep the mind and body active and it can work wonders by prolonging your years.
If they announce that for some reason Young doesn't wish to reprise his role as Scrooge due to age then I would be okay w/this, but if it is just that Disney decides they want someone younger to voice the character i'm out. I hate when they recast a voice actor when the original or second generation voice actor is still around, like Rabbit in the Winnie the Pooh movie from 2011.
I do hope they can match the voices as close as possible for the actors who are no longer with us from the original Ducktales series, and that they do away w/the Quack Pack version of the characters.
And I hope it does really, really well and makes Disney consider animating The Life and Times of Scrooge McDuck.
I do agree and have been stating this for years though that Disney needs to get the ball rolling on a definitive movie adaptation of the "Life and Times of Scrooge McDuck." Could you just imagine Disney winning an Oscar for an adaptation of the Life and Times of Scrooge McDuck, b/c I can. I would totally be fine if it was a DTV like the Tinkerbell series.
